Standing Seam Metal Roofs Support Photovoltaics at Public Housing Authority Townhouse Complex

Fairmount Avenue Townhomes is an 18 unit townhouse development located in North Chattanooga, Tennessee. The project is owned by the Chattanooga Housing Authority and provides low income housing in the desirable North Chattanooga Neighborhood. The project is also designed to comply with Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and is seeking a Gold Certification through the USGBC's LEED for Homes. There are nine, three-bedroom units at 1,383 square feet and nine, two-bedroom units at 1,103 square feet. All units with the exception of the FHA accessible unit are two-story and are organized in buildings made up of four units. The massing of the buildings is based on the 'salt box' form, which is a vernacular architecture prevalent in many southern cities.

The buildings are clad with white clap board siding and incorporate energy efficient windows and doors. The roofs are Englert Series 2000, Kynar coated standing seam metal covering a total of 21,000 square feet of roof surfaces. The 15-inch-wide Dove Grey standing seam Englert panels are both LEED and Energy Star compliant, earning LEED credits toward certification. The framed photovoltaic modules are secured to the standing seam metal roof system without penetrating the roof surface by the new S-5-PV Kit which features a PV stud that can accommodate PV frame thicknesses from 1.3" (33 mm) to 2.5" (64 mm.).

All south facing roofs incorporate photovoltaic panels to provide 10% of the projects total estimated energy demand. The buildings have been organized on the site to make the greatest use of passive solar heating and cooling and to maximize open space. Three all-weather pathways are provided to better connect the project to the surrounding pedestrian circulation system and adjacent amenities.
